Users' guide to Memrise/Decks split up

(Hombre_sin_nombre) #1

If you just registered on the board, then this topic will help to guide you through the latest content, which was produced in a very big amount. If you are a veteran here, then you might need to find something substantial that you saw somewhere, but lost. Thus it was decided to create this thread with the most relevant topics. Please, feel free to PM me if I missed anything.

On 19th February Memrise made an announcement about important upcoming changes in its structure:

  1. In mid-March user created courses will be separated from the official Memrise courses and allocated on Decks website.

  2. There will be no Android/iOS apps for Decks website - only mobile website. Subsequently, there will be no offline mode anymore.

Nice compilation of info. :slight_smile:

Could add this small yet important piece of news from Kevin@memrise about the fact that they are revisiting the idea of having an app/offline mode for Decks. Nothing confirmed, but there is an ever so slight possibility now.
